Mont Blanc Backcountry ski - 4810 m

1 guide for 2 personnes

If the ascent of Mont Blanc Backcountry 4810 m remains an essential objective for all mountaineers, make downhill ski (snowboard or telemark) is truly the most beautiful way of exploring this itinerary.

Many access routes are possible, depending on the conditions of the mountain and your shape:

  • the North ridge of the dome du Gouter from Grands Mulets refuge 
  • Aiguilles du Gouter and the edge of the bumps from Gouter hut
  • 3 monts from cosmiques shelter

Minimum 2500 m of descent by the north face, imagine!


for the 'experts' technical corridors Italian side are also possible to be skied, and original and sexy access  to Grands Mulets refuge... talk about ;-)


CHAMONIX - OFF PISTE SKI (Winter)

Toule glacier - Italy - pte helbronner

Grand ski guaranteed on the Italian side of the white mountain glacier! orientation South and open landscape give this place a really welcoming. Here the slopes are much more supported than in the Valley white and much less crowded. usually, we chained several descents in the day with the cable car of helbronner, by various passages in the middle of not too nasty crevices. most of the routes stop at the intermediate station, the "Pavilion" at 2200 m, but with good snow conditions, we can even go down to courmayeur (1300 m), big slopes into perspective! would like, it is a mandatory break pasta and coffee ristreto "Pavilion"! possibility of return to chamonix by the glacier of the Virgin and the black Valley nearby:-the brenva glacier, incredible itinerary on a tumultuous glacier - courmayeur, skiing in the resort, full of runs varied - glacier of the marbled, a bit of walking or hiking for a long steady descent.

Grands Montets - Pas de Chèvre

From grands montets cable car, just push 3 x on the sticks and hop, go for an unforgettable descent!

alternating large curves in wide slopes, passages technical in a corridor almost raid, skiing along a glacier, hacks in the moraine to finally reach the sea ice... nothing that it ;-)

Aiguille d'Argentière 3901 m-classic or steep skiing

Three proposed route on this magnificent Summit:-glacier du milieu, 4.2/e2/d/s4, a start at 40 / 45 ° but the slope has softened gradually, 1200 m to the hallway in her same and 2600 m total descent. -Y couloir, 5.2/e3/td/s5, 450 m at 40 / 45 ° for the hall itself that we go back to feet. -Barbey couloir, face only, 5.1/e2/td-/s5, a major line in this large face, looped by glacier du milieu and chardonnet pass. these races can be done on the day from grands montets, otherwise we spend the night at the comfortable Argentière  refuge. We're really at the heart of the mountain and the landscapes are amazing.
